TRUE CRIME: A boy’s shooting death shakes Gary

GARY — Richard Meadows wanted to one day make it in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 10-year-old boy wanted to set a record as the first child to write to a million. He only made it to 44,000 before a bullet pierced through the boy’s window and hit him in the head. 

Richard had been sleeping in his bed the morning of Aug. 14, 1993, at his home in the 4700 block of Delaware Street in Gary. The head of the bed had been facing the window of the front of the house.
